About Krav Maga Global

KMG’s Krav Maga is an integrated system of self-defense, combat and fighting, close and third party protection. It is the leading system of its kind in the world, known for its practical and realistic techniques and tactics for avoiding, preventing, deterring, or otherwise handling all types of violent confrontations.

KMG’s Krav Maga system is continuing to be developed by Imi’s closest assistant, Eyal Yanilov and his team of professional instructors and coaches, adapting it to meet the changing needs of civilians of all ages, military units, law enforcement officers, and security personnel. It is an evolving system, which provides novel solutions for dynamic situations. With more than 1,500 active instructors in over 60 countries throughout the world, KMG is the most recognised and internationally active Krav Maga network and we are looking forward to meeting you soon.

Krav Maga Timeline

1944

Imi Sdr-Or (Lichtenfeld), Founder of Krav Maga, started teaching hand-to-hand combat in the Haganah (pre-state defense militia).

1948

Following the independence of the State of Israel - Imi continued teaching in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) as Chief Instructor for physical fitness and hand-to-hand combat, where he developed what later became known as Krav Maga.

1974

Ten years after Imi retired from the IDF and took Krav Maga to the civilian sector, Eyal Yanilov began studying Krav Maga under Imi's personal tutelage.

1987

Appointed by Imi as Head of the Professional Committee, Eyal formed the new curriculum of Krav Maga and introduced it to the other high graded Israeli instructors.

1996

Imi awarded Eyal Master Level 3 - the highest grade in the system - and granted him the Founders Diploma of Exellence (1997). Imi then entrusted Eyal with the mission of turning Krav Maga into an integrated, comprehensive, technical and tactical system.

2010 - now

Eyal and his team established KMG - Krav Maga Global, a global infrastructure designed to expand Krav Maga throughout the world, while maintaining the highest level of professionalism, morals and ethics.
